A new International Tin Agreement?

The apparent equilibrium between demand and supply since the beginning of 1985 remains unstable and some producer countries are urging their governments to leave the ITA. How could this situation come about? How can the problems be solved? *** DIRECT SUPPORT *** A02GP040 00007
